Hey there !
So, I know everyone has their own way of playing, so I don’t know if my idea will look good to everyone, but I think it’s still worth sharing
Because of different work shifts, my friends and I can’t play a lot together, and we often don’t have more than a few hours to play per day (IF we have time).
This makes the maelstrom cycles very annoying, because when it happens, you don’t wanna miss it, so you feel like you HAVE to go farm it, or else you won’t be able to get nice thralls any time soon
But I really don’t like feeling forced to farm something (just expressing how I feel, I know it is not mandatory to farm the maelstrom when it happens), and it’s a big turnoff to me…
Also, the maelstrom is HUGE, and it’s a shame we can’t build in it except as a bait, and not a base. I am in love with the map’s landscapes, so discovering that you can’t LIVE in like, half of it, has been very disappointing to me
So, I know my opinion may differ from that of those who like the freshness of the maelstrom system compared to the old map ; but I was hoping for something like, “new looks, same gameplay” when Siptah was announced, so it’s only my point of view
What I think would be awesome (to me, feel free to disagree of course !) is like, the maelstrom being a permanent instance, like, the void doesn’t come to the map, YOU go to the void and beat some sh*t that would make the maelstrom available 24/7, regardless of the times at which you CAN play, and it would allow more building space !
Also, about highest surges… why make 60% of it special thralls you can’t knock off ?? As someone who often plays alone, it makes the surges very painful and disappointing T-T I don’t mind the difficulty, I just wish I had more chance of having useful thralls in the surges that kick my *ss
Thanks for reading
